National Geographic Unique Lodges

Bushmans Kloof is a member of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World, a prestigious collection of lodges spanning 30 countries and 6 continents. Like Bushmans Kloof, these properties were handpicked by National Geographic for their exceptional guest experience and their strong commitment to sustainable practices. We each embody the values of National Geographic: authenticity, enrichment, and a dedication to preserving our planet’s natural and cultural heritage.

Every lodge in the collection, including Bushmans Kloof, was thoroughly vetted by a National Geographic sustainable tourism expert who spent time at each property, evaluated operations, and met with everyone from the general manager to the kitchen staff to ensure we met their high standards. The review included a thorough vetting based on the pillars of sustainable tourism: protection of natural heritage, protection of cultural heritage, support for local communities, and environmentally friendly practices.

We all strive to connect guests with our destinations in a meaningful way, offering intimate and personal encounters with parts of the world not many get to know - and the chance to slow down and truly discover them.

The TreadRight Foundation

At Red Carnation Hotels and parent company TTC we understand that travel matters; it allows us to explore the world and gain a deeper understanding of each destination, its history and culture, through enriching experiences. 

Created as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, the TreadRight Foundation is a not-for-profit working to ensure the environment and communities we visit remain vibrant for generations to come. By providing grants to organisations that encourage sustainability in different destinations, we hope to maintain the natural attractions and unique heritages across the world that define each region. To date, TreadRight has helped support some 40 sustainable tourism projects worldwide.
